Jim Kwik is a Mental Performance Coach who works with big name celebrities and the country’s top CEOs. He teaches them to make the most of their brain’s processing power. You would think, with mantras like ‘memory will make you money,’ and ‘learn more to earn more,’ that Jim would be a staunch Wall Street Warrior, but instead, Jim uses his power for good and creates Superheros who believe that it’s not about making a dollar, it’s about making a difference.
